Sylvester Stallone script in One Night: Joshua vs. Ruiz

“Balboa Productions” of Sylvester Stallone and DAZN present a “ONE Night” documentary series, covering the A-list happenings of the current era of “The Sweet Science”. The world heavyweight championship battle between Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-1) and Anthony Joshua (22-1) launches the films.


Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua squared off at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 2 (AEDT). The latter, champion at that time, was making his US debut in defense of heavyweight titles. The contest ended in the seventh round in favor of “underdog”, who, was a replacement opponent, after several other matchups fell off.

“My Hollywood script came to life that historic June night when unknown boxer Andy Ruiz achieved a victory that shocked the world. It was the real life Rocky and the perfect story to kick off our partnership with DAZN,” Hollywood boxing icon Sylvester Stallone wrote in a caption to a newly released trailer shared on Instagram.

One Night: Joshua vs. Ruiz premieres on DAZN on November 20.

Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua are scheduled to meet in the rematch on December 7 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles are on the line. The championship bout is scheduled for twelve rounds.
